FAQs

What is the score cut-off?

No cutoff but the higher your scores, the better your chances.  If your passing score is low, it will help you if you pass the remaining tests with as high a score as possible.   Scores tell us how much you know and how hard you are willing to study.

Do you have a maximum number of attempts in CS examination?

No cutoff but fewer attempts, the better your chances.

Does your program sponsor J1/ H1-B visa? Is your program IMG friendly?

We are “friendly” to all who are qualified, however, we only sponsor J-1.  Currently about 2/3 of our program is IMG. 

Is US Clinical experience a mandatory requirement?

US clinical experience is preferred but it is not required. 

Do you have a cutoff for the number of years since graduation?

No cutoff for graduation date but the more recent the better.  We consider those who graduated more than two years ago on a case by case basis.
